Police may consider probe after Sheffield radio station broadcast hate cleric’s sermons

A police investigation could be carried out after a Sheffield radio station broadcast a hate cleric’s sermons ‘encouraging and condoning’ violence towards non-Muslims.

The station has been taken off the air following the broadcast of pre-recorded lectures by American Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, which were found on the internet and used to fill the airwaves during the holy month when the station was without its regular presenter.

Regulator Ofcom said that parts of al-Awlaki’s lectures amounted to a ‘direct call to action to members of the Muslim community to prepare for and carry out violent action against non-Muslim people’.

    Once again SYP demonstrate their reluctance to take robust action against any section of the community that will play the race card as a way of diverting police attention.

    No ifs, no buts on this one, political correctness must not stand in the way of a full police investigation into the broadcasting of racial hate messages by Iman FM.

    This from Star article:

    Regulator Ofcom said that parts of al-Awlaki’s lectures amounted to a ‘direct call to action to members of the Muslim community to prepare for and carry out violent action against non-Muslim people’.

    I fully expect that no action will be taken, just like when 1,400 children were abused in Rotherham, and one of the reasons is that you only have to read the Facebook, Twitter pages of the police,local council politicians to see the steps they take in mentioning Ramadam and Eid to understand just how far political correctness allows the Muslim community to be treated with kid gloves.

    When was the last time you read a public sector social media comment marking Chaukah or Yom Kippur?

    No one group is above the law and that includes those responsible for broadcasting racial hate messages.

    Maintain the broadcasting ban, investigate them and if the CPS has the stomach to press ahead take them to court.

    Ofcom and the Radio and Television Service are the authorities responsible.
